|Named for its yellow foliage. Narrow, conical tree with warty, branchlets and white, peeling bark. Reaches up to 20' tall and about 15' wide. Rough, dark cracks on trunks are characteristic of older trees. Leaves are yellow, toothed, and diamond shaped. Males bear tan colored catkins in early spring. This tree prefers cooler climates, developing too many disease problems in warmer areas. Nice when used with night lighting or planted in groves. To really show off bark, plant in front of a dark background.
